Intercooler Split HELP

I have a 05 F350 with studs and EGR delete stock exhaust, I just started running IDP tunes (Eco, Xtow & Street) this weekend while towing a 3,000 pound trailer up a 8% grade about 55 mph in tow tune my intercooler separated where the plastic tank attaches to to the aluminum body. I don,t have alot of time to research because I am taking the truck, camper and bike trailer on a 4,000 mile trip in a week and a half. Are these intercooler known to have problems?
Easiest way to change? And are the Mishimoto ones worth buying they are half the price of the others. I am not planning on any more mods than I have ( maybe an exhaust) should a stock one be ok?

I would get an aftermarket one or try and fine a stock one that is all aluminum. They are harder to find but they are out there.

The 6.0 never came with a all aluminum intercooler. You can get a misumoto for a pretty good price. I know of a way to get it half price, but I'll have to get the guys email.

I would also check for over boosting stock turbo should not of busted the stock intercooler unless there was a problem with it.

All I am using is the stock boost gauge and it was reading at the next line above 20 nowhere near the red. I did tow a 9,000 pound trailer earlier that day in street tune but again no high boost numbers or EGTs

Looking at the Mishimoto Intercoolers I don't see a listing for a F350 just for 250 I can't think of any reason that they wouldn't be the same. Anyone have any input weather it should fit in a 350.
